Temple of Hathor
Ptolemy XII Neos Dionysos
Standing Headless statue of a man wearing a tight fringed garment and holding 3 papyrus blossoms in left hand. Head and feet missing. Three vertical lines of hieroglyphs on back and 4 short ones on the side of the support. The statue was previously misidentified as Hathor because of the figure's prominent breasts. It depicts the strategos (general?), Korax and this statue type is very common from the last 4th c. BC to Roman times. While the name of Korax has been erased, the titles and form match another statue where the name is preserved.
Exchange with Kevorkian, 1940
